    The Beer Thread

    Enjoying my 1st Sox Ale now while watching Rogue One...wish I was watching a live Sox game instead. They'll be backing eventually. In the meantime I'll just say a silent toast to Farmio and fondly remember "SOX WIN, SOX WIN!!"

    The Beer Thread

    I was at the store yesterday and walked past the craft beer section (ok, maybe deliberately) and saw Zombie Dust which I remembered had been mentioned on this thread. Never had it before but enjoyed a cold one last night. That is an excellent beer!! Thanks for the suggestion. Cheers and Safe Stay Everybody!!

    RIP Ed Farmer

    I really am going to miss hearing his voice when listening to games while driving in the car. I learned to enjoy the give and take between him and DJ. I truly wish he is in heaven finally driving one of those windy city limos, or whatever else makes his dreams come true. Prayers to his family at this difficult time.
  5. It would be cool to start the season by playing the scene with Terrence Mann's "baseball" speech to Ray right before the game. People will come Ray, people will most definitely come.

    Well, if we played all playoff games in Arizona....Adam Engel has a chance to be the World Series MVP 😁

    **Movies that we Watch** Thread

    I usually am not a big fan of mystery movies, but my wife really wanted to watch Knives Out. It was actually quite entertaining and worth a look imho. We actually sat down to watch it with a pizza with my college age son, and he stayed for the entire film (not something he usually does with his folks)....high praise indeed
  8. Was taking off work to see my alma mater for the first time ever with a #1 seed (probably). What the hell do I do during the day next Thursday and Friday.

    White Sox Spring Training Thread

    If EE never plays a regular season game, and we ride the back of Yermin Mercedes to a World Series crown this year....does EE get a ring?

    Who will be our closer by mid-season

    A few years back, while I was listening to a White Sox Weekly broadcast, I heard one of the national baseball "experts" (sorry, I do not remember who it was) and he predicted that the closer for the White Sox when they were ready to contend would be Carson Fulmer. That was at a time when Carson was still considered by people as a future starter. I do root for Carson since by all accounts I have seen he was initially upset about being moved to the bullpen but quickly acclimated to doing whatever it takes to succeed in the bullpen. With his stuff, he could be a possible closer down the road...if he can throw strikes!!

    MLB considering no crowds allowed on Opening Day?

    In honor of you both, let's call it the Parkman-lane scale of panicness. I am currently at a .25 and in no way canceling a trip that I have planned to San Antonio next week. (I don't really like crowds anyways). My wife is more at a 5, so we will see, but I think that is more because she does not like to fly.

    Thank you...I have now voted.

    MLB considering no crowds allowed on Opening Day?

    I did not see an option for just start the season as normal allowing fans to come to the game as usual....so I did not vote in this Soxtalk survey. Would that be the Libertarian button that was not included?

    It depends. Have you taken The Big Hurt's advice and recently been using Nugenix?
